As executive director of the non-profit Rosseau Culture and Arts Project (RCAP), with the assistance of my talented team, we are developing plans that will pump some life into this quaint little village year round. Under our “Destination Rosseau” branding campaign we’re bringing back The Muskoka Theatre Project, starting a film festival, bringing the culinary and visual arts together and presenting a variety of artistic workshops, classes and week long summer camp programmes for all ages! And that’s just the beginning. You can learn more about RCAP at www.rosseaucultureandarts.com .
Of course this takes a lot of time..and money. We are presently writing grants and creating partnerships. In the meantime our efforts are supported by in-kind contributions and the profits from the TWG Gallery, our non-profit gallery we opened this spring. To help out we are holding an auction.
On Aug 3, 2013 we sent out a group of seven artists to capture a “Day in the Life of Rosseau”. As a result we ended up with some incredible images of Rosseau which we are auctioning off in a silent auction, on now until Saturday, October 12, 2013 at 3:00PM. All these works are on exhibit at the TWG Gallery. Up to now one has had to come into the gallery to see all the paintings and place their initial bid. However, we have decided to put them up on line for the rest of the auction until October 12. Each painting does have an undisclosed reserve. If it is not met the artist must then decide if they want to sell.
If you are interested in making a bid simply call me personally 705-774-4487 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll place it for you. It’s that simple. So not only do you get a piece of art, you are helping with getting “Destination Rosseau” off the ground.
